Alright everybody, it’s almost time to head back to school. I wanted to go somewhere nice before heading back to London, so I decided to go for the big names. I’m not a fan of seafood, so not Lee or Bent. I’m not terribly rich, so not Richmond Station. I don’t like to venture out to The Junction, so not The Riverside Public House. So I ended up heading to the Oliver & Bonacini website and found Bannock: Canadian Comfort Food. It was a night of delicious pies.
There’s been a video circulating on Facebook called “Why I Hate School But Love Education” (embedded below in case you haven’t seen the video yet). It pissed me off. And no, I’m not one of those “ignorant fools” who are blinded by society and my parents telling me to get a higher education in order to make money but be empty inside. (That term especially pissed me off because “a Fool” is probably the worst insult in philosophy.) I actually love university. And I prefer Professor Larry Smith’s point of view (also embedded below).
School is going to suck your soul if you study things that you don’t like. In fact, if you do anything that you don’t like for a long time, you’re going to hate your life. It’s in the definition. So the solution isn’t necessarily to drop out of school and become successful on your own. The solution is to do what you love to do.
I don’t know about you ladies out there, but I’m getting sick of purses. I’m usually carrying around a mostly-empty bag, and it looks stupid. I also generally don’t like wristlets because they’re too small and it’s annoying to carry cash and coins in there. I can’t even count the number of times that I’ve forgotten my Starbucks Card in my wallet when transferring things to my wristlet. (Serious issue. I love my Starbucks.) So I went out looking for a clutch.
I know how it feels when your umbrella flips backwards with the wind. I know that awful moment when it starts pouring outside and your umbrella won’t open. I know how annoying it is when your umbrella is soaked with rainwater and is making everything else wet. I know what it’s like when your umbrella breaks on you mid-rainstorm.
That’s why I went on a search for the best umbrella that I could buy.
